Court Blocks School Ban on 'Boobies' Bracelets

Determines the breast cancer awareness message is not lewd

|

A federal appeals court won't let a Pennsylvania school district ban "I (heart) Boobies!" bracelets.

In a novel case involving student free speech, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected claims that the slogan is lewd and disruptive.

The bracelets are designed to promote breast cancer awareness among young people. The court says the bracelets involve a relevant social issue, and are not likely to cause in-school disruptions.
